Back in June, Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced a new partnership agreement with adidas in which the entities would come together for a new Superman-inspired line of merchandise. The line will feature both the heroic Man of Steel and Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic. Howard, whose nickname is Superman, first took the on-court persona of the superhero when he wore a cape for the 2008 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. Part of this new collection will be this extremely limited Superman colorway of Dwight’s new adidas Beast signature shoe, set to arrive here at Eastbay in November.

White patent leather acts as the base of the shoe, while vision blue fills in the Three Stripes, side panels, heel counter and midsole. Comic graphics appear on the medial side panel, while Superman logos are centered on the tongue and heel. Dwight’s signature appears along the upper lace eyelets on the lateral side, while his number “12” appears on the medial side and tongue. A tab on the heel reads “Fortress of Solitude,” the headquarters of Superman himself. Lastly, a translucent outsole reveals a Superman logo graphic on the underside to complete the look.

You can pick up the limited Superman x Dwight Howard adidas Beast at Eastbay on November 1st.
